I don’t like this beer at all, I brewed some myself and tasted just the same. Way too sweet with the alcohol makes it taste like a really cheap wine. yuck! for me but you may like that kind of thing.

heemer77 (5283) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Light gold with no head. The aroma is honey and Golden Delicious apples with some Cabernet wine. The taste is white grapes with some slight nutmeg and apple cobbler. A sweet brew that goes down easy. However, I find the price to be off putting.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Pours orange golden and a tall off-white head. Sweet and sour fruit aroma, quite tart with tones of flower and toffee. Tart fruit flavor, notes of citrus and orange. Grass and nutmeg tones also. Biding on the tongue and quite speciel.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 30, 2005
Cloudy yellow with a white head that diminished quickly. Aroma: white grapes, white wine, and honey. Interesting flavor for a beer: white grapes at first, then the honey hits you in the middle, and it then quickly switches back to white grape with a buttery finish. Mouthfeel was slightly oily.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2005
Bottle. Clear yellow. Foamy white lasting head. Lots of tniy fizzy bubbles. The aroma has fruit and honey, yeast. A Beer-wine-mead. This was drinkable, but at the end the alcohol came foward.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: APR 29, 2005 bottle 12 oz. Clear gold color. Low carbonation. Very poor head that dissapated quickly, little lace. Aroma is medicinal w honey, some yeast, & touch of alcohol. Flavor is Belgian yeast, rather sharp & tart but with a somewhat sweet finish. There is a noticable white grapes flavor & also honey. Sipping this was OK but I like the malty/hoppy thing better.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 22, 2005
12 oz bottle-pours slightly hazy orange hue with a nice sudsy white head. lots of carbonation going on here. white grapes, plums and other fruits in the aroma with touches of spice. Really sweet flavors with some white wine character, plums, grain malt husks, surup and honey. tastes like this beer has some age on it, but its not detracting. that may have mellowed out the sweetness a little. alcohol is well hidden and only makes a presence in your belly. still has that characteristic dfh malt bill and sweetness. pretty unique but not something i would seek out again. thanks for the free bottle whaleman!

Pailhead (6355) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2005
Bottle: Sweet aroma with lots of honey. Definite mead characteristics in the aroma with a touch of hops. Pours a transparent gold with a quickly diminishing white head. Lots of honey up front with a sweet grape, apple, and honey finish. Slightly vinuous. Barely a hop presence in the finish. As it warms alcohol becomes noticeable. A little too much on the sweet side for me and definitely something a couldn’t drink a lot of.
